The country's largest World music and arts festival is taking place in Wiltshire.
The WOMAD festival is renowned for featuring a massive lineup of performers and artists from around the globe, including Zimbabwe, Pakistan and Colombia.
Thousands are expected to attend at Charlton Park near Malmesbury over the next three days.
Headline acts include South African acapella group, Ladysmith Black Mambazo.
The unique blend of culture and colour has people returning year on year.
Ghanaian Abass Dodoo has been teaching drums at the festival for a quarter of a century.
He says that drumming helps people to come together.
WOMAD is about more than the performing arts and there are a range of educational exhibits for the crowd to enjoy.
The festival is expanding its catalog every year with this year's crowd able to learn about physics at a series of lectures.
WOMAD continues tomorrow.
